- Extension will be used for pool name. For instance, if your account name is user, extension is test, the newly-created application pool will be named usertestAppPool.
- Maximum number of worker processes can be restricted by administrator.
- ASP.NET version specifies ASP.NET version for assigned web applications.
- Pipeline mode allows to select between INTEGRATED (if you want to use the integrated IIS and ASP.NET request-processing pipeline) and CLASSIC (if you want to use IIS and ASP.NET request-processing modes separately) modes. INTEGRATED mode is available only if some version of ASP.NET is selected, because it has no sense without ASP.NET.
- 32-bit applications support allows execution of 32-bit applications on 64-bit hosts. 32-bit applications support cannot be disabled if ASP.NET version 1.1 is selected, because 64-bit ASP.NET runtime is not available prior to 2.0 version.
